AUTUMN DRAWS HUNTERS TO STATE PARKS

PIERRE – Game, Fish and Parks officials are reminding hunters that many camping opportunities exist in South Dakota’s state parks this upcoming hunting season.

"Many fall hunters are discovering that state parks offer an inexpensive place to stay while hunting in the area," says Emilie Miller, information specialist with the Division of Parks and Recreation. "Camping cabins are especially favored among non-residents and residents without motorhomes."

Camping cabins are found at 27 state parks and recreation areas across the state. Each of the one-room, log-style cabins have heating, air-conditioning and electricity. Furnishings include a set of bunk beds, double bed, table and benches. Linens are not included.

After Labor Day, most campgrounds offer first-come, first-served camping. Cabins are reservable year-round. For arrivals before Sept. 30, reservations can be made online at www.campsd.com or by calling 1-800-710-CAMP (2267). After Oct. 1, call the park directly.

Firearms are allowed in most state parks Oct. 1 to April 30. Special regulations apply in some parks. See the 2003 Hunting Handbook for specific regulations. Park entrance licenses are required year-round at designated fee areas.
